Tucked underneath a cinema screen and down a narrow stairway, the Lido Jazz Room boasts live music every Friday and Saturday, 8pm – 10pm, from the best jazz players in town. Inspired by iconic Manhattan jazz bars of the 80s, the Lido Jazz Room seats 40 guests alongside the in-house piano and drum kit. Sonny Rehe, owner of Fitzroy’s Uptown Jazz Café, curates the gig guide with both local and visiting acts being featured.

The James Sherlock Quartet
Performance times and bookings
We welcome The James Sherlock Quartet back to the Jazz Room.

Sherlock's sound has warmth and bite. He uses it to produce tense, twisting solos, sometimes churning, sometimes chiming accompaniment.

James Sherlock works with a variety of Australia's finest musicians, including an ongoing duo project with Kristin Berardi, as well as many visiting artists including New Orleans trumpeter Leroy Jones, New York jazz vocalists Sheila Jordan, Chris McNulty and Cyrille Aimee and master drummers Jeff ‘Tain’ Watts and Jon Riley.

Sherlock has also performed/recorded with such diverse artists as British guitar virtuoso Martin Taylor, The Australian Chamber Orchestra, The Melbourne Symphony Orchestra, The Queensland Orchestra, Katie Noonan, Megan Washington, Joe Camilleri & New York film composer Howard Shore.

Duration: 120 minutes
